Lieutenant O. M. Henry Peck Ames College Park, Md.
Sophomore Year, Corporal; Junior Year, Color Sergeant; Senior Year, Secretary-
Treasurer Rifle Club.
"But. Captain, can't a fellow get
married after he joins the army?"
That yotmg fellow addressing the
Commandant is the class sage —
Henry Peck Ames — better known as
"Pete" or "Peter."
Pete first decided to try this life
on October 29, 1890, in that distant
town of Oberlin, ( )hio. Yes, H. P.
claims this as his home town, al-
thongh we can hardly see whv. He
started on his ])ursnit of knowledge
in Henrico Coimtv School, \'a.,
where he proceeded to learn the three
R"s. Xo, this school was not named
for our friend — he moved too (|uickly
for that. In the year of 1899, -we
find that Pete has chased knowledge
all the way to Long Lsland. Here
he entered the county school in Sus-
At last the great day of his life .ar-
rived. ( )ne warm day in September,
1907, Pete made his del)ut in our
Pete is the life of our class. On
more than one occasion he has saved
us all from falling asleep in l>ommy's
class, by setting forth some timely argument that has overthrown one of our
Prof's pet theories. From the depths of our heart we thank vou, Pete.
Although given to farming, he goes in for rifle practice. He has done well at
this, as his medals will show. Yes, there he is now with that box of keys in his
hand. Notice that marksman pin on his coat? He is on his way now' to open
the armory. Late, did you say? Small matter; we have three-quarters of an
hour for drill, you know.
Pete is the original ladies' man now. Do you ever walk down the pike on
Sunday in the direction of Berwyn? That straight young fellow coming down
the road swinging a cane is our esteemed young friend. I wonder where he
Pete has a failing for agricultural work, and expects soon to go back to the
farm. We wish you luck, Pete.

Pardon me, please. This specimen
is blessed, .and life is one blessed
thing after another to him. Me. we
mean Aintadore, thinks he knows it
all, for when not arguing' with Doc.
Tolly about calculus or mechanics, he
is seen discussing engineering prob-
lems of great imjiortance, at Cats'
In his rat year ( and thank heav-
ens this was only last year ) Leo's
nickname, which is still a mystery,
did not appeal to us so he was chris-
tened Aintadore, being a brother of
Isadore. Since his existence at M.
A. C. Ainty, technical information
bureau, checker and advice giver has
become assistant to Doc. Tolly in
French ( ?). Doc. feels so gratified
for Aintadore's assistance that he re-
fused to excuse him from h>ench
classes after Leo thought he success-
fully convinced Doc. that he knew
French. As a military man (?) he
has no peer. He was so advanced
in tactics .and argued to such an ex-
tent with the Big Chief concerning
the various objects of military science
that he finally made up his mind to divorce Major Dai:)ray
consisted in not wearing a uniform and less drill.
Ainty's chief attraction is his neatness. He shaves once every week, whether
he needs it or not. His evening dress, with which he favored the entire com-
munity between Riverdale and the Park, made many a dyed-in-wool sport go
green with envy. Why he even washed, alone, his corduroys (once upon a time)
and made them all wake up and take notice.
Of his prospects as an engineer, we can hardly guess. He contemplates for
his first big job that of .a blue print boy, stake carrier or some other equally res-
ponsible position, such as Chief Engineer (janitor) of the Maryland Agricultural
In conclusion permit us to say that Ainty is a jack-of-all trades. He shaves
himself, presses his clothes alone, takes .a prominent part in social affairs and be-
lieves that women should be permitted to vote.

Lieutenant Samuel W. Blankman, Company B Baltimore, ]\Id.
Junior Year, Associate Biusiness Manager "Triangle;" Senior Year, Business Mana-
ger "Reveille," General Newspaper Correspondent.
On this page we beg to present the
Business Editor (Manager) of this
book. He is no other than Caruso,
Sammy, Isadore, Sol and $$$$.
Take a glance at the cut. Does he
not possess a handsome countenance ?
Observe his piercing eyes. Apollo at
last has his rival. Since his arrival
from the Cr of the Chaldees, "Issy"
has bewildered the world with his
shrewdness and lousiness acumen.
Just before this book went to press
it was rumored that the beloved bru-
nette h.ad been tendered a lucrative
position as manager of a powerful
enterprise, which he rejected ( ?) be-
cause of his love for engineering.
Yes, Sammy is a student. The
eight languages which he studied are
now .a fond recollection and dream,
for often did we hear this lovelight
"spiel" something' ( ?), undoubtedly ef-
fecting the auditory nerves of Profs.
Spence and Taliaferro. As an engi-
neer we must confess Issy has a
bright future before him. His new
method of mastering descriptive
geometry is patented, and Samm\- is
l)usy exposing it to the ambitious.
A report is circulated that Issy is at last in love. When? How? Who is a
mystery ; but it is a fact. Some fair damsel seemed to have won his heart, and
we may see him at any time sling a little ink to the fair one from ( ?) ( ?)
To be just we must say that Issy is some singer. Often his sweet tenor
voice entertained some few distinguished guests and about a dozen music con-
cerns are now bidding for his services and the wond'erful freak of a song ])oem
which he recently composed. Caruso (Enrico), Mendelssohn, beware. "Love
Me and the World Is Mine" and "Lead Kindly Light" are his favorites.
]\ S. — We neglected to mention that, despite his age and beauty, Sammy tips
the scales at 187, and he is now very busy in i)reparation for his trip to Hot
Springs. Here's luck to you, boy.

Historian, Freshman Year. Corporal; President, Class; Vice-President, New Mer-
cer Literary Society; Sophomore Year. President Class; Chairman, Junior Pro-
gramme Organization and Reception Committee; Assistant Editor "Triangle;" Junior
Year. Sergeant-at-Arms of Class; President of Rossbourg Club; Editor "Triangle;"
President, June Ball Committee; Social Editor, "Reveille;" Manager, Football Team;
This visage which greets you is
none other than Milton Ernest, alias
"Peck" Davis. It could be no other.
Peck is the dyed-in-the-wool married
man of the class (almost).
Peck announced his existence l)y
a lusty howl in 1892, and proceeded
to develop his lungs with such howls
as "Papa make an elephant mit a
shizel" and "a bo — ot, P,a — pa." He
learned to read, and specially to
write, at City College, and still holds
a fond love for his previous alma
mater. He then migrated to M. A.
C. in 1909.
As a society man, Ernest seems to
drift during his first two years, but
on July 6, 1911, Dan Cupid drove
his magic dart home, and ever since
then Uncle Sam has had a steadv
customer on the mail trains, both
coming and going to Roland Avenue,
near the city line of Baltimore.
He is Doc. Tolly's favorite, having
been elected by him as assistant dean,
due to Peck's wonderful ability to
"spiel" formulas and make high
grades on exams., in some of which
lie has made as much as 584. As an athlete, his one shining light is lacrosse,
having been a regular member of the Varsity team for four years.
Peck has been a favorite ever since his arrival here. One can see by the
numerous offices he has held that he is very popular, and as a Soph he was an
ardent wielder of the hickory, while his present address is Elm Avenue. In
the future Baltimore, Md., holds out inducements, matrimonial or otherwise,
and Ernest expects to hie him thither and settle down, but we would suggest
that he remain single and settle up.

Lieutenant Ralph Scott Healy, Company A New York, N. Y.
Sergeant, Junior Year; President, Engineering Society; Class Prophet; Humorous
Editor "Reveille;" Senior Year.
"Wotcher t'ink dis is, eh?" Such
may be heard issuing from the
physiog. of our esteemed Pink. Pink !
Oh, yes, I forgot to state that our
friend with the military bearing
and Napoleonic figure — yes, it's Na-
poleonic, but hard to notice — has a
growth of wonderful pink locks. He
hates to be joked, however, about
that black spot a la "Silver Threads
Among the Gold."
Pink intends to join the army ;
in fact, he has been hanging around
the "Fort" for these four years,
and — oh, what's the use? In his rat
year someone described him as "the
fellow with the you-be-damned atti-
tude." Let us not be convinced that
such is the case. Its only this atti-
tude upon special and rare occasions,
such as having tent pegs pulled out
from under one's tent, etc.
R. S. H., while with us here, has
gained quite a rep. as a wit — to wit :
"How many of youse are up there?"
"Three." "Well, half of youse come
down." Some call this wit. "Oh,
what crimes are committed in thy
name?" Pink's one great stunt is argumentation. Ask Nitz. Why Burke, Pitt
and Webster had nothing on him. Such great questions as "How far is Hyatts-
ville from College Park?" and "Why is (Tommy's cape?" have been held down
with Ciceronian skill.
Pink, by the w,ay, is an Electrical Engineer. Ain't he classy? And what's
more, he intends copping that medal. Nothing to it, old boy. But what is all
this flurry and commotion about? Why, it's only Pink rushing through his
exams, so that the 11.30 from Washington to Broadway will be honored with
his presence. When it comes to catching trains. Pink takes the belt.
Here's looking at you, Pink, old boy. May success ever greet you in life
as it has done at dear old M. A. C.

Sophomore Year, Corporal; Junior Year, Sergeant.
Act I, scene i, railroad station,
Westminster; Time, Fall of 1908.
"Goodbye, Willie"" ; "So long. Bill ;""
"Take care of yonrself, William;"'
"Write soon, Billy."
As these remarks were being firecl
at the Honorable W. B. by sad maid-
ens, the morning train, only one hour
and forty-three minutes late, was
slowly pulling out of the station.
Yes — that tanned youth sitting in
the rear seat and so absorbed in the
paper is our friend. But watch ! The
cause of interest in the paper ap-
proaches and taps him on the
"Fares, please !" Of course. Bill is
slightly startled, but produces a ticket
at last. Bill is u]) to tricks so soon.
Well, I should say Bill is some
ladies' man by the looks of the vari-
ous special deliveries, phone messages
and letters received by him. The
regularity of certain epistles from
Westminster and elsewhere is aston-
ishing, as well as perplexing, on ac-
count of the various postmarks on
them. Bill, besides being some
"fusser," often endeavors to perplex his fellow classmates with such questions
as this: "Why do 'SO few of us get out of this world alive, etc." Like the
great ( ? ) T. R., Bill is quite progressive and follows his example even to the
extent of writing a French-English vocabulary condensed both in spelling and
meaning. For example, wee wee — you and me. Bill's latest idea is to go into
the Philippine Constabulary; his only objection being that he cannot get mar-
ried until be becomes a Captain. There is a fine chance for advancement in
that service, owing to the fact that so many officers are killed annually. Some
inducement (?) to be an officer.
"Here's to Bill, so good and true," etc. ; "may he have all success and ad-

"Now, fellows, it amounts to this,"
etc. Do you get that cocksure, easy
delivery? Sure you do. This speci-
men of a Mellin's Food baby can be
no other than "Pop." Yes, we call
him "Pop," and why do you ask?
Just take one glance at that noble

Are you ready, M. A. C. ? Come
on now, fellows, and say, just glue
your lamps on that personification of
the Beef Trtist. The way he wades
through that line is a shame. Pop
has held down every office from deck-
hand to major, and can hold down
either with equal skill and dexterity.
Not content to rest on his "laurels,"
as an athlete, he is "Gwynn" to ttirn
out to be a modern Beau Brummel.
By the way. Pop is some student.

from Commy's office any time between retreat and broad daylight. Yes, Koehler
is a military man ; even his highness, "der Commandant," thinks so, and that is
what can be called some boast.
One good point about Pop is that you can't get his goat — he knows too much
about them — "butt," etc.. etc. Pop has been with us for years, and by his con-
stant square dealing and honest endeavor, he has endeared himself to the hearts
of all who know him, and we unite in wishing him success and happiness in his

Lamp that map, kind friend. Dost
wonder how any thing- with a topo-
graphical survey like that could bear
the handle of "Nathaniel Alan?" It
is as much of a mystery as his nick-
name, "Nitz." The writer can't ex-
plain either, but it is possible that he
was so yclept because of the fact
that whenever a friend of his takes
the role of the Governor of North
Carolina, and repeats the old
but ever welcome formula, Nat al-
ways replies in the negative. Being
an admixture of Teuton and Bronx-
ite. his reply possibly took the form
of "nit," and from its constant use,
the plural form "nits" or "nitz" be-
came a synonym for N. A. L. S.

Nitz is an athlete — one can tell that
by the bump on his nose, and his at-
tainments along that line are not
wholly confined to the muscular va-
riety. Why, he's beaten every "cop"
in New York. The biggest race of
his life is now on. He and "Pop"
are on the homestretch of the race for
the Bovine Engineering Medal, carrying with it the degree of C. F.
Although not generally known, the boob is some navigator. He holds the
title of blaster Alariner, and has steered to a safe haven nearly every schooner
in New York.
In addition to being a "fusser," Ignatz can get fussed .at the slightest provo-
cation. On one memorable occasion he acquainted the mother of a very well-
known M. A. Caesarine with the fact that her daughter couldn't dance enough
to keep warm. Since that time he hasn't been quite so eager to enter into
polite (?) repartee with the mothers of his friends.
But here's to you, old Rummy. Thirteen expects great things of you, and
come what may, Nitz with his bum jokes, volatile disposition and big heart will
never be forgotten.

Sophomore Year, Historian, Corporal; Junior Year, Sergeant; Senior Year, Mana-
ger of Lacrosse Tiam.
Pat stood for law and order when
he first entered the mystic portals of
M. A. C, but many things have hap-
pened since that eventful day.
( Some of the fellows in our class
always did think they were Fresh-
men. ) Pat soon settled down, when
he reached his Senior Year, however,
to his duties as Adjutant. He
thought that he had a harrl job when
Johnnie S. was here, but — Our new
Commandant arrives on the scene and
Pat's troubles immediately begin. It
seems that Commy isn't satisfied with
r^at as an Adjutant alone, but wants
him to be private secretary, clerk of
the court and assistant orderly com-
bined. Pat complains that he doesn't
have time to eat his lunch, but is told
that when the Commandant was an
Adjutant he only ate one meal a day.
Pat says his appearance doesn't bear
that statement out.
Pat did have hard luck with his
thesis. He was planning to have it
completed by Easter, but our little
fire spoiled that by destroying all his
notes, and now he has to work clear
up to the last day just like the rest of us poor unfortunates.
Did someone say ladies— that's where Pat shines, especially in the ballroom.
He knows all the new dances (with variations) at least a month before they are
invented, and maybe he doesn't make some use of his knowledge. What spare
time Pat has had outside of Commy and dancing, he has spent to good advantage
in the Chemical Laboratory, and has made quite an enviable record in that
branch. But that is only natural with Pat, .and we are not surprised at all as
he has made a habit of getting good marks ever since he entered here.
Well, Pat has already secured a position which he will fulfill as soon as he
graduates. May he have every success.

Chief Tru:\ipeter Ezekeiel J. Merrick
Sophomore Year, Corporal; Junior Year. Sergeant.
Zeke is one of the members of our
happy family who hails from the
Eastern "Sho." but for all of that, he
has ,a soft spot in his heart for the
Western part of the State. This is
especially noticed whenever one of
our teams go to Westminster. Zeke
never misses one of these trips. He
is also fond of spending^ ])art of his
holidays at P.ill Hull's "home. (Rill
lives at Westminster.) Another fa-
vorite stunt of Zeke's has been to be
a month or so late every vacation,
but he has always managed to makv
up the work, and as one of Doc's
boys has always managed to hold his
own with the rest of the class.
Sure, Zeke has had his troubles
with Doc, but that never worried
Zeke ; the only thing that ever has
caused him worry was the fact that
he couldn't oversleep some morning
that the O. C. did. Even if he did mis-
calculate rather often, he always man-
aged to keep one demerit below the
margin. While Zeke has never taken
the trouble to particularly shine as an
athlete, he has been going after the medal in the tennis tournament for three
years now, and at present it looks as though he stands a good chance of getting
it this year. This is Zeke's only hobby, but if he could get anyone to play tennis
with him at four o'clock in the morning he would willingly go without his three
squares and stay on the courts all day.
Zeke is the most happy-go-lucky member of our happy bunch, and his smiling
face will be sorely missed at M. A. C.

Drum Major George Byron Morse, 3c1 Omaha, Neb.
Corporal, Sophomore Year. Sergeant; Chairman, Floor Committee; Junior Prom;
Junior Year. Historian; Associate Editor of the "Reveille"; Senior Year.
Here conies onr band. Wait jii.st
a mintite until it pas.ses. The tall
man in front with the big' stick is our
friend in question. Isjin't he some
military. Byron is really a military
genius — no kiddin'. Birthplace — he
has none. His father is a bacteri-
ologist in the Department of Agri-
culture, and as a result poor B)yron
has been dragged through Philadel-
phia, New Jersey, Ohio, New York
City, Cambridge, Riverdale, Omaha,
Guel])!!, Canada, .and numerous other
large cities too ntuiierous to mention.
He has suffered torture at the hands
of the pedagogues of these various
places. His early training was re^
ceived at Lima, Ohio ; lience. his big
bean. X^otice the high intellectual
Byron says, "he sees the humorous
side of everything," and no one can
gainsay him, for he is a veritable
Mark Twain. More than once he has
turned away wrath with a soft an-
swer, and quite often one of his
"fool" questions or remarks has set
the class in an uproar. This same
good sense of humor saved Morse much in his rat year. For a while he had them
pretty well bluffed. Quite a number of the old boys advised him not to be so
rash if he was a rat. Evidently, the sunny countenance which he wore did not
seem relative to the cold pessimistic thoughts of a rat.
This progeny of the four winds of heaven is one of Commy's pets, and it was
due to his drag with the Big Chief that Byron obtained his present job as Drum
Major, which, however much it may .appeal to some, does not by any means
satisfy his Napoleonic ambitions.
Last, but not least, Morse is a social man, as you will see in the heading
of this biography. He and Sy work together in a manner very satisfactory to
the student body. These, however, are but a few of Byron's qualities.

Alfred Nisbet Baltimore, Md.
Senior Year, Assistant Business Manager "Reveille;" Treasurer, Senior Class;
Chairman, Programme Committee, Rossbourg Club; Secretary and Treasurer, Chemi-
No, this is not our Mellin's Food
Baby. It is a member of the Senior
Class, otherwise known as "Nebby."
Nebby made his appearance on this
planet in 1889, and has developed
into some orator — his first sentence
being', "a bo-at, pa-pa; a bo-at !" He
later became enthusiastic over wild
animals, and as a result was able to
recog"nize the different kinds. He
turned over to his father and said :
"Make an elephant mit a chizel, pa-
pa ; wit a chisel."
Nebby joined our ranks in the year
of/ 1 911, and has worked hard for the
interests of the class, especially in
the pennant line. I wonder why?
Ask A. N. IMeyer & Company.
Socially. Nebby is "some fusser,"
but althoui;'h his correspondence is
very limited, his chubby little face
and bright blue eyes cause hearts to
flutter and doves to soar from the
Avenue and alight in Georgetown.
Incidentally, the magnetic attraction
of one of the aforesaid doves draws
Nebby to Georgetown during some
of his leisure hours.
Since the terrible catastrophe, Nebby's place of abode has been College Arms.
He seems to have acquired much popularity there, for every morning the land-
lady, on awakening him, replies to some of Nebby's fool remarks with "All
right, my boy."
In the Military Department, Nebby with his company of "busted aristocrats" is
surely some genius, for Captain ( ?) Nisbet is the only one who is the eye of Com-
my's heart. Nebby has worked hard and diligently in whipping his company of
"done fors" into shape, and can enter into competition with any of the regular
companies of the battalion. We must not, however, overlook the fact that his
star drillers are Sammy and Leo. and he has shown his confidence in their ability
by promoting them to the rank of "lootenants."

Whenever you see a bunch gathered
on the campus or in the barracks,
there is one safe bet as to the cause,
Eddie is cracking a bum joke. For
four long years we have been forced
to submit to the punishment of Ed's
jokes. Oh, such jokes. Many and
many a time has Ed left a group of
his classmates gasping for breath,
while he went serenely on his way,
looking for additional victims.
Besides being the "champeen" long
distance joke teller of the Cadet
Corps, the bearer is some singer. His
voice is like the sweetness of a rusty
hinge. The constant giving of the stir-
ring command in honeyed tones, "strap-
jars and sugar bowls," is doubtless
responsible for the sweetness of the
aforesaid voice. If Ed would use fer-
tilizer on his nightingale tones he
would doubtless make a howling suc-
cess in "grand uproar." He has even
been known to sing before the shin-
ing crowned heads of College Park.
While at M. A. C, this product of
"Baltimo" has grown to be some mil-
itary genius. His modesty held him
down till his Junior Year, when Commy conferred on "A" Company the honor
of Sergeant Powell. Then did Edwin Elizabeth's genius blaze forth in a blaze
of glory. Oh ! much.
The recent flood in Illinois dampened his enthusiasm considerably. I forgot
to mention that "she"' lives in Cairo. Yep, everybody's doing it, so Ed thought
he might as well be in the swim.
However, lead where it may, life's pathway will always be brightened for
Eddy by the best wishes of every one of his classmates. We all feel assured
that success will attend him in all his ventures.

''Come in, fellows; help _\'ourself to
these," and Reichard, the host, ex-
tends to us his guaranteed brain
food — dried prunes. Daniel Webster
Reichard, the sage of the class, made
his debut at M. A. C. in the fall of
1910. It was in Dr. McDonnell's
classroom that we were first made
aware of his mental ability, when he
commenced his astonishing disserta-
tion on Ira Remsen's Inorganic Chem-
istr}-. He had completed two cha])-
ters, and well into the third, when
Doc. Mac regained his senses .and
signalled him to stop. I say signalled,
because Doc. was speechless. Xever
before had such wisdom shown itself
in the chemical classroom — aye, even
in any classroom at M. A. C.
Daniel's advent into this life was
somewhere in Washington Count}- ;
we have been unable to discover the
exact location, because Fairplay is
merely the work of some imaginative
genius who had endeavored to have
a spur of the Western Maryland run
through his section of the country.
As a babe in swaddling clothes, he
would bring the wise men of the country swarming to him to receive any chance
drop of wisdom which might fall from his infant lips. Soon he entered the pub-
lic schools of the State, and before many years had received all available
knowledge in that section of the State. To further his mental training he jour-
neyed to M. A. C. Upon his arrival the Faculty saw fit to advance the standard
of the school a whole year in order that Daniel could remain in our midst at
least three years.
Our Solomon claims that at the close of his Senior Year he will return to the
farm, but we are sure such is not the case. There are too few great minds in
this world to let him waste his genius in the country.
As to afifairs of the heart, with but one exception, Reichard has none. That
exception is the President of the National Women's Suffrage League of Fair-

After completing- the two-year
course in Horticulture, Chevy decided
to stay with us a while longer at dear
old M. A. C, so he joined the class
of 1913 in its Junior Year. This is
the sixth year that we have been fa-
vored by his company, as he at-
tended preliminary classes for two
years before taking up the two-year
Notwithstanding the fact that this
fine Cadet was not over enthusiastic
about military tactics in previous j
years, he has developed into a Lieu-
tenant this year of whom Company
A is justly proud.
Our worthy classmate is either a
great student or a wonderful sleeper.
Nothing could distract his attention,
unless it was to keep up his reputa-
tion as a boxer. In stock judging
Towers is a strong competitor, win-
ning quite a sum in prize money.
Everyone was afraid of him at the
recent State Fair. However, though
he is an excellent milk tester, he is
not very keen on the "early rising
and moving around" connected with
the job. We might mention in this connection that Chevy knows how to test
milk without a Babcock tester as well as with one, and has a marked aptness
for the concealing of edibles.
Being "slow, but sure," there is not a more promising- society man in the
class than this handsome youth. Chevy has undaunted faith in poultry, and we
all prophesy that it will only mean a few years after leaving college before
he will become a successful poultryman. He is not only an authority on
"chickens," but is an artist as well, and ranks high among the amateurs of the
College. Six long years around old M. A. C. have given him a wide and varied
knowledge, and we can predict nothing but glowing success for Chevy.

through every stage of the game,
from Private to Captain, and then to
day-dodging. Just how he became a day-dodger is hard to explain. A few
have tried, but have given it up. Boo-hoo, Cab and other College authorities
were wont to consult him much upon matters pertaining to student govern-
ment. Weighty responsibilities have often been laid upon his broad and ample
shoulders, and much confidence reposed in his leadership. Much time has been
spent by Perce and Commy in working out the fine points of military law.
As a business man. Sir G. has renowned ability. During his Junior Year
he managed the Triangle very creditably. He has also shown his ability as a
professional man, his specialty being doctoring. Whatever line of work that
Perce may select, we feel 'sure that he will make good and hold up the repu-

Lieutenant Ernest Trimble, Company C
Several years ago there drifted into
M. A. C. from the mountains of
Western Maryland a wild-looking
chap, who for obvious reasons, was
promptly dubbed "Sox," and "Sox"'
it has been ever since. He was nat-
urally bright, and so had ample time
to make friends and become ac-
(juainted with conditions in .and
around the Park generally.
Just as soon as he got the lay of
the land, he began doing a rushing
business. You may well wonder what
business it was that occupied so much
of his time. It was simply this —
selling. It didn't matter in the least
ndiat it was, Sox would sell it. He
has at one time or another sold nearly
every necessity known in the annals
of our College history. Sox made his
greatest flight in the realms of high
finance when he sold a rat a bedroom
suite and then collected three months'
rent in advance.
Sox has taken some part in nearly
every branch of athletics in College,
but it is in lacrosse that he has
starred, and it was in this game that
he won for himself his title of "Terrible" Trimble. Sox is one of Doc's boys,
and is never happy unless he is somewhere near the Engineering Building or
working on some unusually difficult problem.
Despite the fact that Sox has been kidding everybody here ever since the first
day he arrived, he has a host of true friends who will regret to see him leave
old M. A. C. He has retained the happy faculty of getting through with his
"exams.." and says he has reserved room in his trunk for that dip he expects
to take home with him in Tune.

A Senior's Reverie.
June has come, and she hrings with her a final touch to our sojourn beneath
the banner of old M. A. C. As the good ship of 19 13 nears her port, it fills
us with emotions of joy and sadness — joy, because we feel that now we are
prepared to enter upon the great battle of life; sadness, at the breaking of the
bonds which have held us together for four long years.
Long years they seemed, when as Freshmen, we were introduced into the
great fraternity of college men ; but as we look back, how short they seem ?
As Freshmen our class numbered forty members, and we stood about the halls
of the new building in wonderment. Lonely and strange, we looked with ad-
miration at the rapidly arriving "old boys." At last we were ushered as a
part of the entire student body before the Faculty, and being duly installed as
students, our college life began. We remember with what joy we were
greeted bv the hospitable Sophomores, and how every night they faithfully vis-
ited us ; for months they were thus solicitous of our welfare.
The dignified Seniors, our company commanders, labored patiently with us,
trying to whip us into some semblance of soldiers. The first term of our career
was well under way when we were rudely interrupted in our work. We re-
member with sorrow the holidays which were thrust upon us by the scarlet
fever scare, and how we were forced to return home.
Toward the close of the first year we were ordered to the target range at
Stump Neck, and further introduced to military life with the regulars. On
our return to the campus we found our final "exams." awaiting us, and after
them — "the deluge." One week of rain under canvas in the shadow of the flag-
stafif. The dav of commencement was clear and at parade that afternoon the
graduating officers bade us farewell.
Our Sophomore Year found us together again, but with some of the old
faces replaced with new ones. It was then that Greenberg, Reichard, Healy
and Robinson joined. We returned to College with that important air which
made the Vice-President explain to us that the derivation of the word Sopho-
more is a "wise fool."
Our chief aim that year was the careful upbring of the new men, and con-
scientiously working with them and visiting them as we had been visited, ex-
cept that we were even more attentive than our predecessors had been. We
introduced the system of "rat rules" to aid them in their daily life, but these
were short-lived, as some of the powers looked with disapproving eye upon them.
Commencement week brought us together again under canvas, and again we
bade farewell to our Senior officers. Then came a sadder duty. We bade
good-bye to one whom we had learned to love and respect— Captain Edgar
T. Conley, V. S. A., a man who for two years, as he had guided us through
many of' the disagreeable duties connected with military matters, had taught
us that fair play and unbiased observance of our duties were the first and fun-
damental principles of a true soldier and gentleman. So ended the turbulent
passage of our Sophomore Year, and we owe our safe voyage to "Peck"
Davis* whose steady hand was at the wheel.
We remember the coming of our Junior Year, with its heavier responsi-
bilities and graver duties, and how we upheld the dignity of upper classmen.
36 THE 1913 REVEILLE
In the classroom, on the drill field, and in the dififerent branches of student gov-
ernment, our experiences all tended to settle us to a more serious view of things.
This year brought us a new king, who knew not Joseph. The War Depart-
ment detailed Lieutenant John S. Upham as Commandant and Professor of
Military Science and Tactics.
The fall of 1912 found us again at College, but now we were full-fledged
Seniors, with all the rights and privileges thereto appertaining. This year
brought graver duties and sterner discipline. The Faculty saw fit to yield the
entire control of the students to the students, and 1913 was honored by the
detailing of the four ranking officers to take the posts of officers in charge,
thus doing away with the civilian officers.
We had settled down to work, and the machinery of routine was running
smoothly. The first term was almost over ; the Thanksgiving holidays were on ;
all but forty students were at their homes. It was the night of the 29th of
November. The Cadets who had remained were holding an informal hop in
the College auditorium.
"There was a sound of revelry by night;" refreshments were being served
in the mess hall when word was brought to the Cadet Major that a blaze had
been discovered in the new building. No knowledge of the affair was allowed
to reach the guests until the size of the fire had become known. Then the
ladies were notified, and they withdrew with a coolness which was prais worthy.
When the alarm had been sounded, and it was seen that the buildings could
not be saved, the Cadets commenced the rescue of the property of their class-
mates. Those who were present that night will remember the work of heroes
too numerous to name. They all worked gallantly to save all they could from
those ever-greedy tongues of flame.
Then our guests of the evening — how can we ever show our gratitude for
the aid that they gave us? Clad as they were in their dainty evening gowns,
they set to work as gamely as any man among us. As we watched the fire
lick up the two buildings, we little thought what it meant to us, but when the
next day dawned upon the heap of smouldering ruins, then came the realization
of our loss.
"No barracks," for a moment meant "no school ;" but the indomitable spirit
of old M. A. C. rose manfully to the occasion. The people in the nearby
towns threw open their doors to us. The College work went on, almost without
a break. There have been difficulties, but the old school has emerged from
the disaster triumphant.
The year rolled on after Cliristmas ; Major Dapray was assigned to us as our
Commandant to take the place of Lieutenant Upham. who was assigned to duty
with his company. Major Dapray is a soldier of the old school and under
adverse conditions is holding M. A. C. up to her old standard.
■ June is here. Soon the old ship 191 3 will be safely in her port, and we
will bid our last farewell to the scenes so dear to us. In the words of our
class ode, it is but
"One more step ere our brave banner of maroon and white shall float,
Firm and bold, in royal manner ; then in lands perhaps remote.
May we climb the ladder bravely, nothing daunted day by day,
Ever glad to praise and yield all honor to old M. A. C."

Or only just a tool?

Nor hesitate again —

In the fall of lyii entered the wildest Two-Year Class ]\[. A. C. has ever known.
The Profs, even classed us as monkeys, and therefore we leave it to their imagina-
tion who threw the apple through the greenhouse roof, who scattered beans, etc..
over "'Tolly's" floor, and who broke the Library window with a snow-ball.
The long summer drought was responsible for the non-appearance of our
class, conditions causing our original number of thirty-three to dwindle down to
twelve. Commencement finds us with a roll of nine, capable of covering much
more than the allotted work. We greatly regretted missing almost a term's work
of each year, on account of the additional work imposed upon our instructors
by the free short courses.
It is our opinion that the Two-Year courses are of such great importance that
they should be better advertised and given more attention.
The graduates of the Two-Year class are of great benefit to the agricultural
and horticultural industries of the State, owing to the fact that the two-year men
invariably go "back to the farm."
Our class has been fortunate in producing men prominent in College circles:
Two varsity football men — White and Willson.
A varsity pitcher — White.
A lacrosse man — Willson. <
A member of tennis team — Irving.
A member of basket-ball team — Willson.
Two members of rifle team — Benson and Irving.

48 THE 1913 REVEILLE
Junior Class History.
The Chief told me at the very start that I should fail, but it is very hard to
convince a young fellow who, as yet, knows not the way of the world, that he
will fail in anything. The mission was a desperate one. It involved dangers
that none but the most foolish and hot-blooded youngster would court. Yet,
when it fell to my lot to be chosen from so many to be the instrument whereby
that lawless gang of outlaws, generally known as the Junior Class of M. A. C,
should be brought before the seat of justice, I .accounted myself the happiest
man in the land. ,
Now for a word of explanation. This gang — may 1 rather call it a class? — was
not composed of ruffians. No, indeed they were the "raffles" type — all gentlemen.
For a long time that part of America, known as College Park, had been in-
fested with these men, and the entire population was in fear of them. Why, the
outrages committed by these Juniors at last became so obnoxious that
the inhabitants sent a petition to the Government, and begged that this pes-
tilence be removed at once. They would think nothing of entering the home
of ,a peace-loving citizen of College Park on the eve of a social function, and,
after stealthily removing all his ice-cream and choice cakes, give him nine such
"Rahs!" as would make him (this same peace-loving citizen) think kindly of
them ever after.
As a result of the aforesaid petition, I, the youngest of the United States
Secret Service, was sent out to round these Juniors up, and fix them so that
they would be a credit to their community. Quite an undertaking for a young-
ster to assume to perform singly, yet, how my eyes sparkled, and how quickly
my heart beat when I thought that on the morrow I should be on the trail of
the most unscrupulous gang of desperadoes in the East. Oh, fiery ambitions of
youth ! How often fate laughs in our faces because of these ambitions.
As the morning sun arose in the East to make his journey of a day, I likewise,
prepared to leave the lovely little town of Washington to make my journey
into the unknown jungles of College Park. My fiery steed (a spavined mare of
20 years) was saddled, my guns on the hip and my flasks were well filled with
that superb stimulant especially adapted to emergencies in the desert.
And so for three days and three nights I traveled without ceasing. At the
expiration of the second day my liquid refreshment gave out, and after that I
suffered agonies untold. My lips became parched, my tongue clove to the roof
of my mouth, my eyes burned from the contact of the hot dry sand of the desert,
and my throat methought was afire. In this condition I arrived at the foot of
the hill on the brow of which was the stronghold of the Juniors.
'Twas evening. The shadows slowly lengthened and the evening zephyrs
breathed a gentle kiss upon my burning brow. Slowly I walked my steed up
the hill, fearfully looked I around me, for who could tell but that some one of
that notorious bunch might be awaiting me to give unto me a warm reception.
However, I reached the top of the hill without mishap, and there a scene of utter
desolation met my eager eyes.
One glance sufficed to show me the ravages of an unconquerable fire. That
which but yesterday had stood in all its glory to testify to the existeyce of a
MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 49
successful college, now, was not, and in its place there lay a mass of smoldering
ashes and bricks.
At length my eyes became riveted upon a spot right in the center of the road
at the very brow of the hill where once stood what must have been, to judge
by the ruins, a beautiful building. But what held my gaze so intently was, in-
deed, a rare object. It was the figure of a very little man seated cross-legged
upon a large stone ball which seemed to have been a part of the decoration of
one of the burned buildings.
As I drew nearer the object of my curiosity 1 noticed that, though the little
fellow was not misshapen, he was just plain ugly, and mighty ugly. You,
my reader, may have seen some ugly faces in your life, but never a l)ird
He had on a pair of huge black-rimmed goggles which gave him the appear-
ance of an overgrown grasshopper. His complexion was of an olive drab, with
the pimple polka-dot effect. But after I had gazed into his small, deep set,
piercing eyes for fully a minute, I realized that tliere was more to him than his
mere physical appearance.
"Could you give me any information, "" said I, "as to the whereabouts of
the Juniors of M. A. C?" '
He looked at me a few seconds, and then carefully expectorated and wiped
his mouth on a bandana. Next he took from his mouth a quid of chewing
tobacco, which would have choked .an ordinary horse, put it into a little tin re-
ceptacle, and said: "Well, I reckon I kin, bein' as how I'm one o' 'em myself."
"Pray, tell me who you are,'' said I, and I felt my knees knocking together in
a fashion as to keep time with a lively two-step.
"Why, I are Ras," and he smiled; and lo, he was uglier. "Everybody knows
Ras 'round these diggins. I am the guy what's gotta write the history of these
Juniors, and I knows all about them."
"Well, then, would you mind taking me around .a bit, and making me ac-
quainted with them. I have heard so much al)out them that I really would feel
honored by meeting them."
"Sure, I'll take you."
And that's how it started. Little knew I what I was up against. The first
Junior I met seemed a harmless little brute, but little I knew of him.
My guide, noticing for the first time my physical condition, drew from a deep
recess in his trousers a large, mellow brown bottle with many "X's" on it.
This he gave unto me, and I drank, and never before, nor since, drank I such
a noble draught. Ras' brand was at least good. I was much refreshed.
"Well," said R.as, "we have just time enough to go down to Reddy Williams'
house to dine. He's a pretty bad one, so come on."
So down the road we went, and when we neared the center of the Park I
heard voices raised in argument. It .sounded something like this :
"Reddy, you've cooked that bloomin' egg two and a half hours and it isn't
soft yet. Why don't you put a little more salt in the water j^ I like mine salty."
"Deed, do you, and who do you think is doing" this cooking, anyway."
"You're not, that's a cinch. You're in love again, Reddy. How do you e.x-
pect to cook?"
50 THE 1913 REVEILLE
just then man}- noises came out of that house, and as we entered we found
two men flighting'. Pans, pots, china and knives were flying through the at-
mosphere at the rate of ten per second. No one was hurt, however, and my
guide introduced me to Mr. J. 15. Gray and ]\lr. R. C. WilHams, both Juniors.
Johnny and Reddy were keeping batchelor's hall, and the dinner they gave
us was rather rare. It was all served "a la mode." There was an abundance
We spent the night with Redd}', and the next morning I wandered otT b\
myself in search of new adventure. "T\A'as not long before I found it. In de-
tail I will tell you all about it.
I had not walked very far when I heard footsteps approaching. I turned and
beheld an awe-inspiring sight. A tall, good-looking, blue-eyed chappie was
bearing down upon me — and the noise he was making with his mouth was ter-
rible. "Hemystera, Colepederatiumrr, Pharmeacramuxurn," said he.
"What's your name and what are you doing?" I asked.
Carefully he looked me over. Then he took an entire plug of "picnic" twist
and put it into the cavern below his nose. He kept a rigid silence for half an
hour, after which he watered the road with tobacco juice, and began his tale
"I am a Junior, my name is Lord Francis O'Neill, of Germany; and for my
morning's exercise I call all the bugs and insects in the world by their first
When my senses returned I found myself seated next to a tall, distinguished,
looking man in a classroom. It was logic that was being taught. My vision
was clearing rapidly, and I noticed that the gentleman next to me was about
to speak. "Professor Bomberger, will }ou please tell me logically how Lam
Levinsky is going to start a new clothing store where Mike Levin used to was
is been aind it?"
Later I found out that his name was l^ruitt, and he was a logician.
Just then an infant in another ]>art of the room chir])ed out:
"If my father gives me a promissory note for a hundred dollars, and he
won't give me the money, and I get somebody else to cash it, wliat'U I get?"
Somebody bawled out: "Why, Deeley, you'd get a lickin'."
The silence that followed was l)roken by a fiaxen-haired Junior named Rogers.
He said : " 'P"esser, if I promised to marry a Hyattsville girl, and don't do it,
can she sue for a breach of promise? I'm an infant in the eyes of the law,
Before the Professor could open his mouth, a real cute-looking youth by the
name of Coster jumped up and said: "Does the honorable gentleman from Bal-
timore think that any girl from Hyattsville would marry him? He's got the
"But, 'Lesser, if I get on a train with a ticket that is five years old, and
they put me off with force, can I sue for insult and injury to my dignity?"
"Try it and see, ]\lr. Fletcher," said the Professor.
And these were the men I was sent out with to round up ! And as I though.t
m\- heart was heavv within mv breast.
MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE
As I gazed around that classroom I saw man\' juniors who. as \et, had done
nothing to make me famihar with them, Ixit — I had had en(iugli !
Slowly, and sadly, I wended my way from that room. Aly trusty steed was
impatiently awaiting my return. Sorrowfully and despondently I mounted, and
with all the hope burned out of my life, I once again turned my face to my native
City of Washington.
Even my mare seemed to share my feeling of des])ondenc_\-. for his ver\' figure
took on a look of utter dejection.
It was finished. The Juniors were ho])eless — and so was I.
They continued enjo\ing life as before — even as nmcli as if tliev had good
sense, but ah! thcv were mv "Waterloo."

TO THE TUNE OF "DEAR OLD GIRL."
Here's to our dear old fourteen,
Soon to sail upon life's stream,
Our hearts shall always, always turn to thee!
Be the sailing rough or smooth
We shall ne'er forget our youth.
And our class of fourteen winners aim to be.
Do away with if's and doubts;
Onward! Upward! be our shouts.
Ever bear the happy tidings of good will.
Never falter in the pace.
Always foremost in the race,
Inspired by M. A. C. upon the hill.
We do love thee so dearly.
We've all stood by thee yearly,
Whatever may be our calling, we will always think of thee,

In the days of old, in the realms of thought, the seers soared far away;
In the days of old, did they think of naught but juggling words? Nay, nay —
We are told they taught, they preached, they fought for the things they
thought were right.
But after all, with their words so tall and sleek and smooth and fine,
They have failed to grasp, from first to last, a thought of the true sublime.
For with all of their teaching and all of their preaching, they never yet

58 THE 1913 REVEILLE
History of Class of 1915.
The scholastic year of 1912 had a most auspicious begiuuing for the class of
191 5. All but two of last year's representatives returned to resume their studies.
Another favorable omen for our class was the entrance into its ranks of a num-
ber of rats. AVe feel sure that these new boys will reflect credit and honor to the
class of 1915.
The Sophomore class each year has the great responsibility of acting as father,
mother and big brother toward the rats. It endeavors to please them, as such
near relatives should, by supplying them with all the little necessities of life,
prominent among which we find broom fights, rat-meeting, and other social
events of great pleasure to the aforesaid new boys.
Our class acted as a reception committee for the new boys, and you may rest
assured, gentle reader, that they were well received. It is said that one of our
number ( who, by the wa}', travels to Hyattsville rather frequently) had a large
blister on his hand as the result of continuous application of the persuader. So
vou see, gentle reader, that our class has labored most industriously, in order
that the new boys might feel at home, and we have received many thanks ( ?)
from them for our most noble work.
The class of "15 feels greatlv honored as a result of the vote of thanks tendered
them by the faculty and O. C.'s, expressing their thanks for the good conduct
of our class. Yet a suspicion must have been entertained by "Big Bob" that we
were not as innocent as we looked, for one does not sit up of his own accord
until the roosters begin to crow.*
So it may be seen that our class has always been ready to help out the O. C.'s
when in trouble, and it has done everything in its power to preserve order during
its Sophomore year.
Because of the intellectual ability of the class of 1915, we can rest assured that
they will set a new record as to the highest number of conditions received in one
term. So you see, gentle reader, that our class has labored most indefatigably to
preserve order and promote learning at dear old M. A. C, though the Sophomore
class is usually charged with every atrocious misdemeanor that is committed
during the year.
Our class will always look back to the year "when we were Sophs," at dear
old M. A. C, and think of the pleasant times we enjoyed. We are all now looking
forward to the time when we shall be full-fledged Juniors, so let us ring the
curtain down on the Sophomore class of 191 5.

64 THE 1913 REVEILLE
History of the Freshman Class.
The Freshman Class of the present scholastic year started with forty-three
students on the roll. This number has gradually decreased to thirty-three stu-
dents. A few of our classmates were obliged to leave college because of circum-
stances over which they had no control. Some of the fellows, however, seemed
to tire of the gay college life, including militarw and longed to be at home with
"mother."" Some were suddenly aware of the fact that they would rather work
at home than go to college. Their parents, probably thinking their sons were sick,
told them they might come home. The disastrous fire which destroyed the bar-
racks did not cause any of our class to leave college.
The Freshman had some fine times. For instance, the night we nearly decor-
ated the campus. If the O. D. had not arrived at the wrong time, we would have
given a fine demonstration of landscape gardening. Although the attempt was
unsuccessful, it broke the ice for the other classes. The new members of the class
derived great pleasure from meetings which were held, under the management of
the "Sophs," in a certain room on the top floor of the new barracks. Judging
from the singing and oratory, these meetings greatly resembled literary societies.
These new cadets also discovered that errand running, sweeping, and gun clean-
ing were easy ways to help break the monotony of barrack life, and also to drive
away thoughts of home.
The Freshman Class was well represented in all forms of athletics. Some of
the best players on the football and baseball teams were Freshmen. The trajck
team was mostly composed of Freshmen. Our class has representatives from
all parts of the country, including Charles County and the "Eastern Sho'."
If the ambitions of some of our classmates are realized, there will be such
miracles performed in the military, agricultural, engineering, and political worlds
that parents will mortgage their houses to send their sons to M. A. C.
We are all looking forward to that great day in 1916, when we shall say "Fare-
well" to our friends at M. A. C, and go forth as men to make our way in the

A Rat's Recollections.
When Reveille did loudly blow,
And the ground was white with snow,
And the stars peeped in so bright,
From the darkness of the night.
And the air so cold and chill
Made the notes sound weird and shrill,
Left my brain in such a flurry.
Then it was I used to worry.
When your shoulders back must be.
Cap on brow so you can't see.
Eyes to the front, fins turned out.
Corners square, face right about.
When we had to go just so,
Upstairs, downstairs, to and fro.
Head and brains and heels all hurry,
Then it was I used to worry.
When at early morn we'd dine
On "strap" and milk and "dogs" so fine.
And on eggs that once were new.
But now, alas, advanced had grew.
One chicken furnished soup, somehow,
And butter never saw a cow;
Everything without the curry —
Then it was I used to worry.
But now, fellows, don't you know.
Things don't seem to go just so?
Fort Conly now in ashes lies,
No more O. C.'s to play our spies.
The rooms are swept for once and all,
No pictures hang upon the wall.
Farewell, topsy-turvy hurry;
Therefore — I should worry.

The Military Department.
Its ()i-:ic.ix, Purpose and ( )r,ji>:c'i\s.
The Military Department of the 3,lar\land Agricuhiiral Colle.^e owes its origin
to the now-famous Federal law, known as the "Morrill Act," which was passed
in 1862. It guaranteed certain Federal hel]) to those educational institutions
whicli wor:l(l include in their curriculum the teaching of agriculture, mechanics,
arts and science, and militar\- science and tactics.
The three great duties of the rural citizen are to improve and conserve the
farm lands, to develop a high standard of rural life in time of peace and to
protect this land and life if the time for fighting should unhappily ever come. It
is the airii of our College and its ^lilitar}- Department to educate its boys to the
highest standard of rural citizenship.
The United States must always fight its wars — wars which cannot be evaded
or avoided, peace theories to the contrary notwithstanding. West Point alone
cannot supply the demand for officers. The very first call for volunteers
for a big war would take at least fifteen thousand company ofificers, and if the
military schools of the country do not furnish them, the country would be at a
loss to secure its trained men.
Of course, there is another advantage in militar\- schools — an advantage
wholly apart from the life and duties of soldiery. Every military student learns
self-contnd, self-restraint and self-discipline. He learns method, and soon real-
izes that it is as easy to do things the right way as it is to do them the wrong
way. Fie learns the rules of fair play, uprightness and square dealing. He learns
how to control himself, and as a result knows how to control others. He is not
only fit to be a leader of men in military service, peace and war, but to govern
and control and lead and handle men in the larger avocations of life. He can
run a ranch or big farm or superintend any industry much better with his
military training than he could without it.
With traditional respect for these facts, which relate to the origin and purpose
of its military department, the students of the M. A. C. have always felt the
laudable ambition to excel! in the achievements expected of them in military work.
That is why they are proud of the star they won as "Distinguished Institution,"
but nothing- in that feeling will keep them from entering fully and cheerfullv into
the new plans that are being considered for a reorganized military department,
under the new conditions and the new Commandant, who is to act under the
new President of the College. The War Department exacts no prescribed amount
of military instruction ; it only fixes the minimum, and below that M. A. C. will
never fall at least not while it cherishes tradition.
MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 73
Mayor John A. Dapray, U. S. A., Retired.
Major Dapray holds a dual position at the College, discharging duties of two
important, but wholly separate and distinct offices. In one he is the representa-
tive of the War Department, and acts as the Military Instructor in charge of the
cadet corps, as a class. In the other, as Commandant, he is the duly elected
college official charged at all times with the discipline of the institution.
By birth and early eduation he is a South Carolinian. Coming to make his
home in Washington, he was admitted to the District Bar from the National
Law School, and later indulged in newspaper and magazine work, becoming
the private Secretary of L. O. C. Lamar, of Mississippi.
In 1 88 1 President Hayes gave Major Dapray his original appointment as a
Lieutenant in the Army, with men like Hampton and Butler, of South Carolina ;
Gordon, of Georgia ; Lamar, of Mississippi, and many prominent editors of maga-
zines and newspapers. He first joined his regiment in Colorado, where for four
years he saw active Indian service. In 1885 he succeeded General W. S. Han-
cock, at Governor's Island, X. Y.. and the following year became Aide-de-Camp
to General Nelson A. Miles, in his famous campaign against the x*\rizona Apaches.
In the next few years his duties were varied, covering service in Texas. Aide
to Secretary of War Elkins, duty at the White House under President Harrison,
Adjutant at the War Department's "Model Camp" at the Chicago Exposition in
1893, ^"d finally Adjutant of the Twenty-third Regiment of Infantry, on duty
on the Mexican border.
When the war with Spain broke out, he was appointed Assistant General of
the L^nited States Volunteers, and assigned to the First Division of the Third
Army Corps. He next joined his regiment in the Philippines as one of the first
commanders, with power of governor, judge and jury. On his return, in 1902, he
again went on duty in Texas, then in Florida as Alilitary Adviser to the Gov-
ernor, and after three years' service, was transferred to special duty in the
War Department of Military Information, and subsequently assigned to the
Army War School.
He was next appointed as Commandant at Peacock School, at San Antonio,
Texas, and from there assigned to duty at the M. A. C. in January, 1913.
In dear old M. A. C,
That's where I long to be;
Where hearts are ever true,
And you will ne'er feel blue;
Where we have drill every day,
And yet have time to play.
That's where I long to be —
With Commy, at M. A. C.
74 THE 1913 REVEILLE
Target Practice at Congress Heights.
Last fall (luring- the first week of October, when the leaves were assuming
their color of maturity, the different classes of the college cadet corps, acting in
compliance with an order from the Commandant's office, took trips to Congress
Heights, D. C, for the practice in shooting with the United States Magazine rifle
on the District National Guard Range. Each class welcomed then- trip as an
event of instruction and ])leasure. This is invariably the case in military activi-
ties at the College when these two characters are combined.
The first trip was made by the members of the Junior and Senior classes. After
hurriedly eating our breakfast we secured lunches and ammunition, each cadet
carrying his supply, and lueandered jo3^ously to the trolley station to board the
7.30 car. As the weather was delightful and the fellows were feeling quite
"natural." after their ir.orning smoke, it is only reasonable to expect that the ride
over to the "Heights" was a lark in itself. Lieutenant Upham, our Ex-Command-
ant, greeted, and joined us on our way through the city, after the "smoke" had
subsided. When we reached the end of the trolley journey, Major King, of the
District National Guards, who had the supervision of the range, kindly invited
the Commandant and the cadet commissioned officers, as many as could, to ride
in his 'bus. The rest of the party proceeded on foot to the range, a distance of
about a mile. In a very few minutes firing began. Not only were the bull's eyes
in the targets riddled, but it would have been rather dangerous to venture within
some distance of the mark, either in the bushes below or above the target. As all
of the bovs could not shoot at the same time, it fell to the lot of some of theni
to assist the men on the range with the targets. On one such occasion "Byron"
Morse almost got the erroneous impression that the Commandant did not intend
to let him try his markmanship at all. During the half hour for lunch almost all
of the fellows would find their way back to the stores on the car line for soft
drinks and cakes.
Leaving the range in the late afternoon, when the sun was about two hours
high, the party of the day, weary and lame, made their way to the car. Shortly
after six o'clock the crowd from the range would come straggling up the college
avenue hungry as wolves. The Sophomore, Ereshman, and the old boys of the
Sub-Ereshman and Preparatory classes, went to the range on their respective
days. Those who composed the party of the last day were men from all classes
wlio thought they could better their previous score. The Sophomore class kept
up their reputation for having a good time, on all such occasions. A medal was
awarded by the National Rifle Association for the highest total score, 128 out of a
possible 150 being made by Lieutenant H. P. Ames. All those having a total
score of 98 or over received a marksman button.

To battle! To battle!
Loud rang the war-cry.
Up from the battle-field
Into the blue sky.
Snorting of horses
And moaning of men,
Dumbing the soldiers,
To speak not again.
Death with ifs sickle
Red running with blood,
Smote life from the soldier
From just where he stood.
Thundering of hoofs
On forms that are crushed
Silenced their heart-beats;
In death they are hushed.
All men and all horses
In the great fight,
Death combatting with Life,
Through the dark night.
The spirit of man
Is afire with strife.
In the glory of battle
He yielded his life.
A life for a life!
Is the war-cry now.
Hear the moan of the dying,
See the crushed bleeding brow.
Onward! Still onward,
For their cause, which is just.
Till forms of brave heroes
Lie prone in the dust.
They come to the ridge —
A trip on the sod —
And crashing to death
Cry mercy from God.
Down in the ravine
On Waterloo's night,
Steeds shriek in their agony
Of suffering and fright.
All is now over
Where the marsh-reeds nod;
And the heroes of Waterloo
Rest at peace with their God.

98 THE 1913 REVEILLE
"Fire! I^^ire ! on the top hall of the new harracks." These were words
which, not shouted, but whispered in the ears of the Senior officers on the night
of November 29th, set everything astir.
Oh! .What a beautiful night it was. Nearly everybody had gone home to en-
joy the Thanksgiving vacation, and all around the barracks everything was quiet
and still. The surrounding landscape was flooded far and wide by the silvery
light of the moon, as through a cloudless sky she calmly soared to her zenith.
It was an ideal night for a nice little dance.
"All was quiet and still?"
"No, not quite."
The orchestra was quiet ; all were at refreshments. Occasional bursts of mer-
riment, issuing from the mess hall in the old barracks arose above the whis-
pering of the old pines on the campus.
It was in the midst of such merriment that misfortune found the students of
the AT. A. C. For some time a faithful band of fighters had been working
hard and with apparent success, both in fighting the fiames and in avoiding the
panic which news of the fire might cause among the guests. lUit now the
southwest wind seemed to add new hunger to the flames, and slowly, but surely,
they were mounting to the attic. In as quiet a way as possible, the dancers
were notified that a blaze had started up in the new barracks, and perhaps it
would be better for them to withdraw. Then it was that the true manhood of
each AI. A. Caesar came to the front. Quietly and orderly all went out, .and
then each man in his evening clothes turned to the burning building, but all
was too late. Already the flames were issuing from the eaves and gable window
of the southwestern portion of the building. The attic was full of smoke .and
too hot to allow anyone to enter. All the streams that could be played upon
the fire were turned on and everybody was working hard, Init all to no avail.
The halls filled rapidly with smoke, and fanned bv a light southwestern breeze,
what, but a short time before had been a small blaze, was rapidly assuming
threatening" proportions. The flames now rose high and started to their work
of destruction with a roar. It now became quite clear to all that our own fire-
fighting apparatus was totally inadequate to the demands of the case, so all
who were not already engaged in removing property from the burning building
turned their efiforts in that direction, ^^'ho can relate even a few of the things
he said or tell what he did? Who will ever forget the hurrying to and fro,
the bursting of doors, the crashing of trunks, suit cases, etc., on the hard
cement walk as thev were thrown from the windows?
MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 99
Some, becoming nervous and excited, threw things indiscriminately ; but
through it all a remarkable coolness of head was exhibited by the majority of
the Cadets. First attention was given to the records and other valuables in
the offices on the first floor, a large proportion of their most valuable contents
being saved. But there was barely time for this, and little time for anything
else. The roof of the doomed building was now all ablaze, and portions of it
had fallen in, so that it was dangerous to attemi)t to save much on the top halls.
Later, portions of the walls began to fall so that the building had to be aban-
doned to its fate. The flames swept through it very rapidl\', and in a sur-
prisingly short time it was one blazing furnace.
By this time quite a crowd had gathered from the surrounding towns. Pro-
fessors and sympathetic friends, together with a fire-fighting brigade from Hy-
attsville, .all set to the task with self-sacrificing ardor. Of course, it was use-
less to attempt to save anything from the new barracks. Portions of its walls
had already fallen and others were in a tottering condition.
Attention was now turned to saving the remaining buildings. The old bar-
racks, although the wind was carrying the heat and flames away from it, was
likely to burst into flames at any moment.
Science Hall also stood in a very threatening and strategic position. If the
flames should claim it, who could tell how much more would be lost? The
woodwork on the corner next to the Administration Building was so hot that
the hand could not be borne upon it. Streams of water were kept playing over
the woodwork by a number of men. prominent among them being the janitor,
who kept his post despite the intense heat, until t-he building was out of danger.
Our efiforts to save the old barracks were fruitless. The door to the attic was
battered in, the skylights knocked out or kicked out in order to carry a line of
hose on the roof. This was done, but the ]iressure had now become so low
that not enough water could be obtained to be of much value. The fight was
continued, however, until an adverse pufif of wind filled the building with smoke
from the new barracks. The position then became so hazardous that it was
necessary to leave. Later the wind blew more strongly from the southwest,
and as many of the windows were open much of the smoke disappeared and a
chance was given to save more of the students" property. The fire spread rather
slowly. It had to work against the wind, and from the top of the building to
the bottom, in addition, the construction was entirely ditTerent from the other
barracks. Though by no means a fireproof building, it having been built in
1856, the brick structure stood the ravages of the flames remarkably well. The
top floor fell in first ; then the fourth, and so on down, until the whole building
presented the spectacle of a huge blazing furnace lighting up the midnight sky
THE 1913 REVEILLE
with a million glaring sparks. Xo more awe-inspiring' sight could have been
wished by those who are thrilled by roaring, crackling flames and billowing
clouds of smoke. It was a scene long to be remembered, and not many Cadets
will forget the emotions which filled their hearts as, standing in the fire's red
glow, they watched the burning of the "Did Barracks." around which so manv
])leasant memories clustered.
When the fire broke out a call was sent to Washington for aid. and had the
firemen been able to get their engine ofi" the car at College Park, the "Old Bar-
racks" would probably have been saved.
More than one thread of good fortune was woven through the whole un-
happy disaster. \\'e shudder to think what might have been the result had it
occurred with the barracks full of Cadets at 2 A. ]\I.. instead of 10.30 P. M.
With a few exceptions, no lives were endangered. One Cadet had retired, and
when awakened, had to leave his room by the window : another was cut off
from retreat while fighting the fire from the chapel roof, and was obliged to
lower himself by looping his fire hose around ,a ventilator and lowering him-
self on it; several were overcome by smoke, and one or two had very sore
shoulders as a result of breaking open doors.
MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE
Mail)- instances of personal self-sacrifice and praise-worth}- action could doulH-
less be recounted, but we pass them all by in our enthusiasm occasioned by the
noble work and indefatigable efiforts of all.
But it would be rude, indeed, to conclude this short description without at
least a passing tribute to our fair guests. Never was there a more nervy bunch
of girls. The cool manner in which they received the intelligence of the fire,
the heroic way in which they helped to save our belongings will go down in the
history of old M. A. C, and in the memory of us all never to be forgotten.
No praise can be too high, no tribute can be too great for them.
It was now necessary to gather the scattered trunks, furniture, clothing, etc.,
together so that it could be guarded until morning and then stored away until
identified by the absent owners, since in all only about 35 or 40 Cadets were
present. The rest of the night was spent in this work.
Day dawned, and blackened ruins were all that was left of what had so lately
been the scene of merriment and pleasure. The walls of the Administration
Building had crumbled and fallen ; but those of the old building still pointed sky-
w.ard, a proud monument of the skill and workmanship of an earlier day. The
barracks were gone. That stern reality now forced itself upon us all ; but many
sweet memories still linger of the happy days spent there.

Believe me, if all those entrancing old scenes,
Which my mind so intensely recalls,
Were to change by tomorrow and fade into dreams.
Like the glories of far distant Halls;
Thou would'st still be adored, as this moment thou art,
Let thy majesty fade as it may, —
Around thy dear ruins each wish of my heart
Would always lovingly stay.
Oh, the heart-rending moments of fear and suspense —
The fire as it raged all around —
The thoughts and excitement of students intense —
Seemed a year to the crowd on the ground.
At last it was over, andi thought all in that mart,
As sadly we wandered away,
"And around thy dear ruins, each wish of my heart

ATHLETICS AT THE MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE.
As is the case with all colleges when they decide to abandon the old method
of hiring their athletes, and adopt the more honorable system of playing on their
teams only bona-fide students, so M. A. C. has for years been laboring under
difficulties in her athletic competition with other colleges.
So great have been these difficulties that at times it seemed as though our ath-
letics could not possibly survive. At these times, however, the old and famous
M. A. C. spirit came to the front and, either by an additional appropriation for
equipment on the part of the board of trustees or by the services of .some of the
Alumni l:)eing offered as coach, we have managed to get over the rough places.
Within the last few years, however, a decided improvement has been noticed in
all branches of our sports, and we feel confident that this is to continue.
Last year our football team lost but one game ; the baseball team is making a
record that is to be envied by any college of our class ; the lacrosse team, while it
has not won many of its games, is making anything but a poor showing for a
team that has wholly inadequate training facilities. As for basketball, who can
say that we have not had a successful season? In the indoor meets in Wash-
ington last winter the relay team defeated St. John's and Western Maryland in
Thus a cursory review of the contests of the last year will show to the most
prejudiced that the athletics of old M. A. C. are indeed "looking up." The crying
need of this institution, now that we have secured the services of a most excellent
coach, is a gyinnasiiiiii. No college, no matter how willing her athletes may be
to work under adverse circumstances, can hope to have winning teams without a
gynmasium. It is a physical impossibility for a man to give the best he has in
him to a team when playing in a game, if he is not taken care of ofif of the field.
But it is rumored that we are to have a gym very soon. If this report is true,
now that we have the athletes, the coach and a loyal student body, the outlook
upon future athletics indeed assumes a rosy hue.

Mr. H. C. Byrd, otherwise known as "Curl}," Assistant Manager of Athletics,
Assistant in English Instruction and general coach of athletic teams at the Mary-
land Agricultural College, was born in Crisfield, Maryland, twenty-four years
ago. Twenty years of that time has been spent in the study and practice of all
athletic sports, from playing "hookey,"" as a kid at school, to playing football,
baseball, and the "races," with some of the fastest amateur teams the country
has produced. Mr. Byrd was a student at ?\I. A. C. from 1905 to 1908, and during
that time excelled in every form of athletics to be found at the college. He was a
star on the football and baseball teams, won medals as a runner, and played the
best game of tennis in the school.
After his graduation here Mr. Byrd studied literature at the George Washing-
ton University, and while there developed the greatest football eleven they had
ever had. After leaving them he studied journalism at Western Maryland Col-
lege, and accepted a responsible position with the Washington Star.
Although giving adequate time to his work at the college, he is still connected
with the Star, and finds time to write most of the amateur athletic news for that
paper. Since accepting the position here, Mr. Byrd has won the friendship and
good will of both the faculty and the student body. He has absolutely refuted the
idea that an athlete must necessarily be something of a tough, for the college
does not have on its entire stafif a more refined, courteous and genial gentleman
than "Curly" Byrd.
As to Mr. Byrd"s ability as a coach, the splendid results of our athletic
teams speak more elocjuently than words could possibly do.
May M. A. C. long continue to have his services as coach, and her athletics
will surely prosper.

What is more inspiring- than to see a nioleskin-clad warrior tearing down the

This year our football team was crowned with highest success. To be sure, we
lost to our bitterest rival, St. John's, but this was the only game lost during the
We opened our season in Richmond, against Richmond College. No, it was not
exactly a walk-away, although we did score forty-six points while Richmond
College only gained first down once. In this game Shipley, our star quarter-
back, sprained his ankle. Knode then took his place, playing quarter in every
game except the last two when Shipley returned.
Then followed the Hopkins game, which we won by a score of 13 to o. Imagine
the joy in our midst when proud Hopkins was forced to lower her colors. But
still our winning streak was unbroken. The next week the University of Mary-
land received a trouncing to the tune of 58 to 6.
But here our onward march was temporarily halted. The reason? Here it is!
St. John's, 28; M. A. C, o. This, however, was the only break in ,a successful
season. Gallaudet then met defeat at our hand, 13 to 6. x^fter Gallaudet the
march led to Westminster. Western Maryland boasted of not having lost a game
on her home grounds in eight years. Did we break the record? Well. I guess!
M. A. C. 17; W. M. C, 7. Our last game was on Thanksgiving Day, with
P. M. C, and the result was a tie, 13 to 13.
Much credit is due to Coach Byrd for this successful season. With only five
men as a nucleus, "Curly" built up the best team old M. A. C. has had for years.
For the future we all hold high hopes. This year we lose only one man by
graduation. Koehler is certainly a valuable man, but ten men is far better to
build on than five.

"Come on, fellows ! Cjet in this, now ! l^Zvervbodv on
your toes !" See that health}-looking- specimen plaving'
center for the Maryland Aggies. Now watch him hit
that line ; sure he blocked that kick. That's a favorite
stunt of "Pop.'s." Another little stunt of his is to fall
on the ball every time an opposing player fumbles. But
what has made "Pop" such a good center is his ability to
keep the team fighting, never relenting for a moment,
till the game is on ice.
Frank HotTecker, since entering M. A. C. has taken
up football, much to the joy of the students and faculty
members. For some time, he did not make a regular
position on the team, but by 191 1 he had become one of
our luost brilliant performers. He was elected captain of
the 19 1 2 team, and gave the school the best football teaiu
that has represented it for years. In the last game of
1911, when the team was playing a losing game, "Hoft"''
grabbed the ball, and without any aid whatever from his
team-mates, ran through the entire Gallaudet team for a
touchdown, thereby winning the game.
THE 1913 REVEILLE
Little "Willie" Morris, generally known throughout
Southern college circles as "Country," came to us from
Tech. High, of Washington. We all knew he could play
football, but no one ever dreamed that he was to develop
into the whirlwind of a half-back that he has. It is safe
to say that he has gained more ground the past season
than any other half-back in the South, and the fact that
he was placed on the South Atlantic team speaks for it-
self. Next y^ar he will captain the football team, and
we expect g'reat things of him.
"Dick" Wdiite, the man who is known
as "Stonewall" by the men who have
played against him, held down a guard
position on our football team last vear.
Many a time, when it looked as though
the opposing team were about to crash
through and spoil our plays, the specta-
tors would see a mass of men suddenly
piled up, and "Dick" had spilled 'em
again. We are sorry, indeed, that "Dick"
is contemplating leaving us this year,
and it is to be hoped that he can be per-
suaded to stay a couple of years more.
Willson is the man who is commonly known around
M. A. C. as "Noisy." But that very characteristic that
gave him his name was a feature that always was heard
to good advantage on the grid-iron. Willson played
guard, and he and "Dick" WHiite made a pair of guards
that it will be hard to duplicate when next year's team
is made. He has never been known to lose his head on
the field, and all through the last season, if one man on
the team could be depended on to be "playing the game,"
that man was Willson. ~S1. A. C. gives him up with sin-
THE 1913 REVEILLE
At the conclusion of the basketball season, all eyes were turned toward the
baseball candidates, who were practicing every afternoon in the gym.
At iirst the prosi)ects were not very promising for a, winning team, but by the
time the men were able to get outside, some of them began to show big league
form. The work outside was seriously handicapped by wet weather, so that
when we went over to ])la}- the Xavy, we had had but one line-up, and Hoffecker,
who went to the mound, had not had a good work-out. That Navy game will
never be forgotten by those who witnessed it, Hoffecker pitching air-tight ball,
and backed up by an inf eld which was playing in big league style, defeated the
Sailors, 3 to 2, the winning tally being registered in our half of the ninth inning
when "Country" Morris knocked a homer.
That was the opening game of the season, and the team set a pace that it has
maintained wonderfully well ever since.
During Easter vacation they defeated Richmond College and Mt. St. Jose])h"s,
and lost to Catholic University, a team which has played bang-up baseball all
season. The Georgetown game was lost, 5-1, our team playing far below
The strong teams of Rock Hill, Richmond College, Johns Hopkins and Gallau-
det were next met and defeated decisively, our men outplaying them in every
stage of the game.
In the Hopkins game, Knode and Hoffecker distinguished themselves by
getting homers off Piefer, the crack pitcher of Hopkins. The St. John's game
resulted in a very hard-fought affair, in which we came off with the long end
of the score.
The work of the team as a whole, stamps it as the best team M. A. C. has had
for years, and thus far we have yet to be defeated by a State team. Let us hope
that we can finish the season with no more defeats.

"Pete" is known all over the State as M. .\. C.'s clever
little infielder. Not only is he a versatile player, holding down
all positions on the team, except possibly the battery position,
eqnally well, but he is always playing a hard game. More
than once he has literally pulled a game out of the fire by his
good head-work. In his Freshman year, he played third base,
and since then has been constantly on the job. This year
he has captained the best team we have had for years, and it is
owing to him and his fighting spirit that we have piled up our
x\ ' For three years "HoiT" has been the main-

I ^ When a man can go on the mound against
a team such as Navy had this year, and with-
out having played in a game previous to the
contest, hold them to two runs, thereby win-
ning the game, he proves himself to be above
the average. In his Freshman year he was
])ut in the box time and time again when the game was
already lost, but he never complained, and is noted for his
willingness. That is the kind of stuiTt" all good college
athletes are made of, and "Hoff" stands out as an example.

A Girl's First Baseball Game.
(Told by hi:r Brother.)
Sav. Jack, did you ever take a girl to a baseball game? Cause if you baveu't.
then don't. I always did tbink a girl was an awfully big goose, anyhow, and
now I'm dead sure of it. Just lemme tell you about it, and you sure will agree
You know they had a game on the campus the other day, and Sister's fellow
was going to play, so she got me to take her down— said she'd pay for me, and
get me a box of candy, so I thought that was a dead cinch.
Well, honest, the way she went on was something fierce. Time she got to the
grandstand (no. she wouldn't sit on the bleachers) she saw a lot of the girls,
and of course she had to run over and kiss them all around. And then nothing
would do but that she must sit by them, "so she could talk," as if she didn't do
that everywhere all the time.
So we squeezed in, and she sorter puffed out her hair and powdered her nose,
and shoved her hat down a little more over her eyes, and began to chatter and
giggle — though that's a chronic state of affairs with her.
"Oh, girls," do look at that man!" was the first thing she said. "What has he
got that funnv little thing over his face for? It looks like a wire dish cover!"
"I reckon that's to keep the dust out of his eyes." remarked one of the girls,
"Or maybe flies or mosquitoes," giggled another.
"How funny! Now what is that man standing in the middle of the court?"
"That's not a tennis court. Sis," I managed to get in. "It's called the diamond,
and that man is the pitcher."
Sister giggled (of course), and said, "Well, I reckon he must get his name
from the old saying, 'Little pitchers have big ears,' for he certainly has got most
awfully big ones."
Well. Jack, I nearly fainted, and then somebody a,sked, "Tom, where's the
fom-th base?" and Miss Maud said, "Why don't the umpire play? He just walks
around and looks at the people, and it don't seem fair."
Just then the umpire called out, "One strike !" and, honest, all those silly girls
got just as nervous and fidgety, and said. "Oh, goodness. I'm so scared! Is
anybody hurt?" "Who'd he strike?" "Do you reckon the ball could come
over and hit any of us?" And all that kind of stuff.
I said. "Just see how he muffed that ball !" and I give you my word. Miss
Anne said. "Why, where's any muff? He's got on gloves, and just one at that!"
Well, I left Sis to get home with the bunch and beat it— candy or no candy.
Believe me, kid, girls are pretty nice at parties, but don't you ever take one to a

of the most successful seasons it has

In this meet, om- second re]a\' team
defeated the second team from lieorge -fKen'^A^^^^

team again won laurels by defeating Western Maryland College. 1)\' winning
this race we were entitled to the State Intercollegiate Championship. In this
meet, our second relay team lost to Richmond College. Several men falling on
both teams marred the race considerably.
( )n Saturday evening, March 8th, the rela\' team was pitted against Lehigh
University at Richmond College Meet, held at Richmond, \'a. The second
man, running on our team, was accidentally tripped by the Lehigh runner, and
lost about 30 yards, which the other members of the team were not al)le to
The Third Annual Intercollegiate and Interscholastic Track and Field Meet
was held on the athletic field at M. A. C. on Saturday afternoon. May 3, 1913.
There were about 250 contestants and over 800 entries. It was the largest ?\leet
ever held in the South.
St. John's College won the Intercollegiate Champion.ship, M. A. C. being
second and Western Maryland College third. In the Interscholastic Meet, Cen-
tral and Western High Schools of Washington, I). C, tied for first honors.
Wicomico County High School won in the county school division.
When we consider that our track team this year was comi)Osed of young and
inexperienced men, and our Relay Team in most of the races being composed
entirely of Frcshiiicii. we cannot hel]) but ])redict th.at in a few >'ears we should

The spring of 1910 marked the birth of Lacrosse at I\I. A. C. The team
started with but one experienced player, E. E. Powell. He has had the team
in hand for the last three years, acting as Captain and Coach.
This vear the team is seen at its best. Although we lacked several men from
last year's team, we received some miglity promising new material. Although
the majority of scoring has not been on our side this year, we are not to be
blamed. The colleges and universities that we have competed with all have sea-
soned teams and are out of our class.
The schedule o])ened with a game at Carlisle, Pa. We were downed by the
score of 8 to i. The Indians had an exceedingly good team.
We next encountered Harvard at College Park. Here the visitors, by fast
and clever stick work, shot 12 goals. This same team beat the Navy and gave
Johns Hopkins University a hard-fought-for game.
The Harvard coach was greatly surprised at our skill with the stick. He
expressed a desire for men like ours at Harvard to ])lay Lacrosse. This shows
the material that we have on our team.
Baltimore City College was next met on our field. It was the most exciting
game from the start to the finish. In the first few minutes of play M. A. C.
carried the ball down the field for a goal. B. C. C. turned the tables on us in
the next half. Although two extra periods of ten minutes each were played, the
score remained i to i. During this game M. A. C. showed what it could do. The
team work was carried out smoothly and the men handled the stick at their
best. The boys showed the result of hard coaching and much practice.
We still have several games left to be played, and from the present outlook we
will finish the season in good shape. We still have Mt. Washington, Baltimore
Polytechnic Institute, Walbrook Athletic Club and University of Pennsylvania
Although AI. A. C. has not produced a Championship Lacrosse team, it is one
that we are proud of. It has done noble work. It has put us in touch with some
of the large colleges, and it is making our college known.
Do not let Lacrosse drop. The game has just gotten on its feet here, and
there is no reason why it should not. in the course of time, become as strong as
baseball or football.

THE 1913 REVEILLE
'Peck" Davis is one of the men who helped estabhsh the
game of Lacrosse in this institution. For three years and a
half, "Peck" played an excellent game at goal, and about the
middle of this season he was changed to cover point, and in
that position he covered himself with glory. It is to be re-
gretted that the Lacrosse team is to lose such a capable per-
former, but "Peck" is to graduate in Tnne.
"Eddie" Powell, who helped
establish Lacrosse at INL A. C.
four years ago, is the man whom
the team has reall\- been built
around during this time. Not
only is "Eddie" a brilliant per-
former on the field, but he is an
excellent coach, and has done
duty in that capacity ever since
the game was introduced here.
In matters such as getting
funds to run the team, "Eddie"
has always been heard arguing
for the good of the team, and as
captain in i()io, 191 1, 1912, 1913,
he has, by his own efforts, kept
the sport from dying out. When
"Eddie" leaves us in June, the
team will sustain a loss that will
be felt for some time to come.
Since the spring of iQiQ, when Lacrosse was first introduced
at AI. A. C, "Sox" has been more or less intere.sted in it, but it
has not been imtil the past two years that he has put forth a
real effort to demonstrate what a classy Lacrosse player he
reallv is. But since that time, "Terrible" Trimble is a name
that has become well-known among the players of every team
we have played in that time. "Sox" is not a man who has "off
days"— he is a man who always stars, and one who will be
sadlv missed when next vear's team is formed.
130 THE 1913 REVEILLE
Tennis lias never been fostered by the colle.s^e as a reqnlar sport at M. A. C,
l)nt still a lively interest is shown in the annual tournament, which is held each
3-car in June.
The courts were cleaned and ]~)ut in s^'ood condition earlv this vear, and from
the present enthusiasm which is shown by the numljer who reported for practice,
the tournament promises to surpass all previous ones.
Tennis, which is beino- pla\-ed hy all collei:i"es now, should be given the proper
support of our athletic council, so that matches could be i)la}'ed with other col-
leges as in other sports. It is hoped that this will be the case in future years.
The tournament last year was a big success. After man\' hard-fought games.
V'ogie and Powell landed in the finals. Powell succeeded by hard drives and
close net-work to down his op]:)onent, and thereby won the gold medal, while
Vogle received a silver medal as the second ])rize.

Xot quite two years ago the cry from all the State, including our own alumni,
went up that M. A. C. Athletics were going back : that they were not holding
their own with the other colleges of Maryland. It was a very serious proposition
that faced us then, and what seemed even more serious was a feasible plan tor
the solution. r)Ut such solution came in the system of graduate coaching and
All M. A. Caesars will not forget several humiliating defeats in football handed
to us by our neighboring colleges in i()i i. We had what seemed two more defeats
before us, when Coach H. C. Ryrd, Alumnus and Ex-M. A. C. athletic star, pulled
us out of our difficulty. With such assiduity did he tackle his job that we not
only won our games, but showed up so well as to have been considered one of the
best elevens of the year. We had no better material perhaps than we had in pre-
ceding years. All that was needed was the proper development of what material
we did have.
Our football season of igi2 was started with practicall\- all new men. \'eterans
Koehler, Hoffecker, Williams, E. P., Johnson and Boland. Around these men
Curley built up as fine a football team as ever chased a pigskin at M. A. C. We
lost, it is true, to our old rival, St. John's, but with all that, it was a most creditable
aggregation. Wq are now in the midst of our baseball season. Of the fourteen
games played up to this date, we have won twelve and lost two. This is indeed
a remarkable showing, and, what is still more, we have annexed the State Cham-
pionship to our credit.
Graduate coaching again made itself very desirable, as evidenced by our team's
showing at our annual Track meet. Coach l\vrd turned out a track team which
went far beyond the wildest hopes of us all, and, what is more, our prospects are

Commencement Exercises June, 1912.
"Hello!" exclaimed the old grad.. as he returned for one more commencement
at the college on the hill. "What's all this on the quadrangle?" And well he
might exclaim, for what he had fully expected to see, the beautiful lawn and tall
shade trees, were still there. But what astounded him was the fact that in front
of the gym. a temporary stage had been erected. In front of this dozens of rows
of chairs, and arranged in a semicircle, back of the chairs, were the bleachers
from the athletic field. All were so arranged that the\- were entirely in the shade.
The old grad. found a seat and, with a sigh of perfect contentment, inquired
who had discovered this ideal method of holding our Commencement exercises.
The idea originated in the President's office, and to the man whose foresight and
intelligence, brought forward this scheme, we owe an everlasting debt of grati-
tude. Instead of sweltering in the college auditorium, our visitors and students
were able to enjoy throughly the entire program. The program was one of the
finest we have ever had, and was still further enlivened by the excellent music
furnished bv the orchestra.

Founded away back in those days when the square dance was the order of the
day, the Rossbourg Ckib has Hved and prospered to these days of the turkey trot
and tango. However, w'ith the modern (?) dances going on all around, the
Rossbourg hops have always been free from the turkey trot. Never has a
Rossbourg hop been of such character as to warrant a slanderous article in the
What: would life at college be without the livening influence of an occasional
dance? Surely college would be a dull place if it were all work and no play.
Therein lies the reason for the Rossbourg Club. What an outlet of excess spirits
we have there ! Relaxation for the plodder ; ambition-awakener for the lazy
man ; and so, the dance serves a purpose in every man's life.
But to give an unsuccessful dance is worse than giving no dance at all. Dame
Fortune has smiled on us and made all our social activities successful. An invi-
tation to an M. A. C. dance is a much-sought-for honor, and greatly are the
recipients of such invitations envied.
Let us take a glim]:)se at the ballroom on an evening when the Goddess of the
Dance reigns suprenie. The monotonous white walls are relieved by many colored
banners. The glaring lights are shaded with soft colored lanterns, while from
behind a row of palms the orchestra pours forth the strains of a soul-stirring
waltz. But let not your glance rest too long on our decorations ; nor let yourself
be carried away by the sweet music. They are all very pretty, but how empty,
they would be were it not for the beautiful gowns, dainty perfume, sparkling
eyes and vivacious laughter of our fair guests. Surely the sight is one to Ciuicken
the pulses of a hemit ! How much the success of our club is due to those fair ones !
Such a scene was taking place on the memorable evening of November 29th,
1913, when that demon. Fire, attacked the college. In the twinkling of an eye
the gay scene was changed to one of horror. Then did that spirit of chivalry,
born in every M. A. Caesar, show itself. Not a man stirred until every woman
was safe. Soon, what had but a few hours before been the scene of social
happiness, was but a smouldering mass of ruins. Gaze on the accompanying
cut, and weep with us as we mourn our loss. In that picture you see all that
is left of that place where music and the dance held sway.
But though we were deprived of our ballroom, the Rossbourg Club was not
forced to shut up shop. Through the kindness of the Engineering Department,
our next dance was held in the drawing-room. Though not as comfortable as our
former ballroom, all that was lacking was made up for in good will and a hearty
reception. No one seemed to enjoy the dance less because it was held in an
Then the Trustees came to our rescue, and soon we had a temporary dance
hall. In this the Rossbourg Club finished its schedule of dances. Now we are all
looking to the new M. A. C. which will rise from the ruins of the old. There
we hope to see the Rossbourg Club in even better quarters than before the night
we were visited by fire. As the old Rossbourg Club has prospered in the past,
so we hope to see it prosper in the future. "On with the dance! Let joy be

Realizing the value of the Bible as a guide in the every-day walks of life, the
students in this institution many years ago established a Young Men's Christian
Association, which has always been an important factor in college life. The
work of the Association began this year in a most promising manner. The whole
student body and members of the faculty, with their wives, attended the reception
which was given to the new students. A general and widespread interest was
awakened by the Sunday-night meetings, at which well-known speakers gave a
good practical talk on religious topics. Among the most promising speakers
were : Mr. Knowles Cooper, General Secretary of the Y. M. C. A. at Washing-
ton, D. C. ; Hon. W. M. Hays, Assistant Secretary of Agriculture; Dr. Sing
Man Rhee ; Dr. J. I. Hall ; Dr. W. E. Miller, and many others too numerous to
mention. A special feature of the work was a Bible class taught by Dr. M. E.

Unfortunately, the fire which came in November seriously interrupted what
promised to be a banner year for the Y. M. C. A. All are looking forward with

Each fall, in Chicago, there is a National Dairy Show, held in the Dairy Build-

Men preparing for this contest usually work two or three years with that end
in view, although it is sometimes necessary to send men who have not had so
At this show the men are brought into contact with the best breeders, the
most prominent teachers of x\nimal Husbandry, men from numbers of other
colleges, and judge the best-bred cattle in the country.
The contest in 19 12 took place on October 28th, a day never to be forgotten
by those who took part in it. After an early breakfast we went out to Packing-
town all ready for what was before us. There were fourteen colleges competing,
making a total of forty-three men.
We were divided into three squads, in charge of a man whose duty it was to
see that absolutely no conversation took place, and that each group remained
together. There were two rings of four cattle in the pavilion all the time, and
each squad was taken to look them over and make notes on their perfections
and imperfections. After doing this for fifteen minutes, we were taken to a room,
and allowed to remain fifteen minutes to write up our reasons for so placing the
The breeds of dairy cattle judged were Holsteins, Guernseys, Jerseys and
Ayrshires. Each breed had a ring of l)ulls and one of cows, and it took half an
hour to dispose of each ring.
We started to work at about nine A. ]\1., and didn't finish till nearly five P. M.
In all that time, not one word was exchanged between the men in competition.
(This excludes women). The results of this contest are published all over the
United States, and a man winning anything is brought before the public in such
a way that it benefits the school and individual to a very great extent.
The Breeders" Association of the four breeds represented give either a $400.00
scholarship or a cash prize to the man standing first in the judging of their
breeds. Besides these, there was a sweepstake prize given to the man having the
highest individual average. Nebraska captured the much-coveted trophy, a silver
cup, awarded the team making the highest score.
The Agricultural Colleges of the following States were represented : Delaware.
New York, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, Michigan,
Iowa, Ohio, Missouri, Nebraska, South Dakota, Idaho, Maryland.
This year we went in defeat, along with a number of other colleges, and did
not win a prize. But the value of the preparation for the contest and the experi-
ence in the ring cannot be overestimated. I believe that the men who partici-
pated would not let anything stand in the way of another such trip.

In earlv winter, the New Mercer Society held its first meeting. At this meet-
ing there were no oratorical fireworks cut loose to astonish the multitude, but
the evening was devoted to organizing the Society. Who should be President,
and lead the Society to glory by the debate route? was a question which needed
much attention. The discussion waxed warm, and it was found necessary to
apply cold water in order to restore several men to consciousness. i\t last it was
decided that there was only one man deserving of the honor. This was that
talented and eloquent cadet — Leonarde De Vincentes.
Having thus organized, the Societ}- started out on its career of debating and
declamation. Enthusiasm never waned and at every meeting the hall was packed.
No trouble was experienced in obtaining speakers for every meeting. In fact,
it was found necessary to establish a waiting-list containing the names of the
manv eager applicants. In the course of the year many important questions
were discussed bv the members. Among them were: How long is a string?
Wh\- is a duck? And that old, l)ut always interesting to]:)ic. How old was Ann?
Put on your old gray bonnet,
With M. A. C. upon it,
Hook on your side-arms,
Take your gun,
And we'll go out on the campus.
And we'll have a little rampus,
With Commy's double-time run.

Morrill Literary Society.
A\'hat qoocl is an education if one cannot express his ideas? This thotig'ht was
iiljpermost in the minds of a sturdy Ijand of M. A. Caesars when they or^'anized
the Morrill Literary Societv. Soon there sprang" up in our midst one who
rivaled JMark .\ntony, or the now famous Patrick Henry.
Following the usual routine, the first meeting was devoted to organizing. After
much dehate a man worth\' to head such an august body was selected. The only
logical man for this place was our able orator. Cadet Levin.
At first the weekly debates of the Morrill Society were not very well attended.
The far-famed el(~>f]uence of the Xew l\[ercerites was drawing the crowd to its
hall. Realizing that there was as much eloquence in the Morrill as in the Xew
Mercer, steps were taken to advertise the fact. A debate was arranged which
would attract the attention of everyone in the college. The subject was, "Resolved,
That Military Training Is r)eneficial to all College Students." Affirmative, Led-
num, R. C. Coster; Negative, Koehler, Ames.
On the night of the much-heralded debate the hall was packed. Every seat
and ever\- inch of standing room was occupied. This was the beginning of good
things for the [Morrill Society. From that time the two societies had about an

For the first time in a .qood many years >.!. A. C. has had a society devoted
to eno-ineerin,g- interests. The society was ort^anized in ( )ctoher. 1912, l)y a
numher of Senior students, who heheved that a more oeneral interest in engineer-
ing- work was needed among the technical men. I'rom the first, the innovation
proved successfuh and man\- interesting lectrires were dehvered by members of
the engineering facult\' and bv practicing engineers, well known throughout the
State. The main feature (if the organization, however, is not the lectures, but
rather the talks given b\- the students, at least one member giving an address
every meeting. This system has provided an opportunity for the embryo engi-
neer to get up before an audience of his peers and deliver his own ideas in regard
to technical matters, and it is to provide this chance that the society exists.

March 14 — I'riday. Everybody goes to town l)ut Chevy Towers. He forgot
his laundry, and thinking" he hacl classes next day, devoted the evening to study
which resulted in a whole evening wasted.
March ih — Training" quarters finished in Science Hall. Reichard then takes
annual bath. Much rejoicing on the part of I'ritz \\niite. who won't have to
pump any more H._,0 for Reichard.
Alarch 17 — I've been studying "Chem." so much that the Muse came back
ag'ain last night. I take the exam, tomorrow, and when I find out whether I
passed or not, then I'll tell you the stanza. It isn't such a nice one, so if I flunk
the Editor says I can publish it.
March 18 — Haven't heard yet.
March 19 — Won't hear until after holidays.
March 26 — Holidays over. About that other matter:
Erom the midst of his acids and bases,
And heterogeneous trash.
Some day we wdll hear an explosion
And out he will come with a crash.
Eor Old Doc he makes mighty concoctions.
And odors that smell most uncouth.
Eor he raises earth, sky and the water.
To expound an extremely small truth.

March 28 — Everybody out in their new Easter uniforms. Reichard, Presi-
dent of ^. M. C. A., is wearing" a pair of leggins that look strikingly like those
Johnny S. lost in the fire.
April I — Nobody sung in chapel this morning. The biggest joke of the day
was when Chevy Towers tried to tell us that he was a man on this day of days.
To think that people have been willing- to let that poor thing- live for twenty-one
years ! The charity of the American people is wonderful.
April 2 — Commy cuts loose again because Pete was five minutes late opening
April 5 — Idlers give a rag dance at the \'ille. Some night prowlers purlo'uicd
the eats, causing the management to have a vacuous sensation in the vicinity
of the belt.
April 6 — Sox and Truitt decide to open a dancing school for the purpose of
teaching- the faculty of M. A. C. how to rag. The new faculty yell to be
adopted todav is as follows :

April lo — Some miscreant committed a heinous crime by entering, under
cover of darkness, and with the stealth of a low-brow, the sacred predncts of
Commy's office, and the aforesaid sneaking culprit did, with much disrespect,
purloin the cloak which does, at sundry times, envelope the portly person of
our Commandant, and did, furthermore, maliciously hoist the aforesaid cloak to
Lhe topmost height of the College flagstaff.
April II — Arbor Day exercises this morning; holiday in afternoon; Junior
"Prom." at night. 'Twas a big success, with much rain. Fact is, it rained so
much that everybody rather enjoyed it. Thank you. Juniors.
April 12 — Everybody sleeps today as a result of big dance last night. Oh,
what is the height of unkindness, to let a fellow sleep at Union Station so
long that he misses the five o'clock train? Referred to Sox.
April 14 — Mayfield and Trimble attend a lecture in Washington. Sox picks
up a few new rag steps, so, from an educational standpoint, the evening was
April 15 — Orders issued with regard to Cadets returning to College carried
out today. Bill Hull and Merrick say good-bye to hot rolls and good meals.
Show in the Ville for benefit of flood sufferers. Quite a number of stage-struck
Johnnies. A strange coincidence — the leading lady wore pink roses ; next morn-
ing Bill Fletcher asked me confldentially if I knew what would keep a pink rose
he had from drooping. Bill sighed and groaned around that rose all day. I
wonder if there is some meaning which hasn't been unearthed as yet.

E. P., sigh for Hyattsville again. Play Richmond College; beat 'em — ii to i.
Another fire at M. A. C. Poultry plant burned down (or up). Allan severely
hurt. Why does a chicken cross the road?
April 20 — I think Pll write an ode to the old College barracks, so —
The sun shines bright on dear old M. A. C,
'Tis summer, with schooldays most o'er :
There's a vacant place in the life we students love —
A memory of days of yore.
A fire came to dear old M. A. C.
And levelled the barracks to earth ;
The old College is changed and only mem'ry lives ;
We value that for what it's worth.
(That last line doesn't rhyme so well, but I had to put it in for the sake
of euphony. Here is the chorus.)
Weep no more, my classmates.
Oh, weep no more today.
We will sing one song for dear old M. A. C.
Of dear old memories far away.
April 22 — Boo-hoo. Charles S. and Commy spiel jointly and consecutively on
track meet, oratorical contest and the lamentable disaster.

186 THE 1913 REVEILLE
We're tired of Thomas H. S.,
We're tired of German and mess;
We love our Boo-lioo,
And all the rest, too,
Will remember him long, we confess.
We're tired of Doctor H. Mac;
An M. D. he is, not a quack;
He's long been a fixture,
Juggles any old mixture, —
Sonio chemist he is, for a fact.
We're tired of Prof. Warner T.,
In his classes we all want to be;
He sp'els fertilizer.
And we become wiser
In growing farm crops, don't you see?
We're tired of Doctor Sam B.
A, D. V. S. not an M. D.
We're tired of rules,
Of dosing sick mules,
Wc re tired, but sanitaree.
We're tired of Prof. Frank IB. B. •
And plugging his English, by Gee!
When spieling the laws,
He never will pause;
In his bonnet he must have a "B."
We're tired of Prof. Harry G.
Professor and Dean of M. E.
Oh, my I how we wish
We could land a cat-fish —
But for us, he's too smooth and slippree.
We're tired of Prof. H. and math.,
He's made ours a mighty hard path;
We're tired of trig..
And we've sure had to dig
To keep down his vials of wrath.
We're tired of Prof. Myron C.
Professor and Dean of E. E.
He can sleep beside work,
But no duties will shirk —
We never had him up a tree.
MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 187
We're tired of Prof. Thomas Sy.,
Who advocates swatting the fly;
He says that Bordeaux
Makes Flea-beetle geaux,
And won't let Turkey-trotting go by.
We're tired of (". R's oration
Rising merely for new information:
The way he wastes time
Is a sin and a crime —
V/liat he says may be worth emulation.
We're tired of J. B. S. X.,
And his trips over woodland glen;
Always fiddling around
New ideas to expound,
To Botany there is no end.
We're tired of Doctor H. T.
Professor and Dean of C. E.,
He gets here at ten,
In time for Amen,
Goes golfing at harf-after three.
We're tired of Major Dapray,
An old Indian fighter, they say;
We love our dear Comniy,
Despite his large tummy.
Promulgating orders each day.
We never knew new Prexy Pat — •
Ye lesser lights, take heed of that:
A man superfine,
Keeps you on a chalk line; —
Thirteen gives three cheers for you, Pat.
We're tired, and want to go home;
We're tired reading of Rome:
We're tired of knowledge.
We're tired of college —
We're all after wives of our own.
188 THE 1913 REVEILLE
But the editor's pen was quite worn out,
The ink-bottle emptied — for you,
The editor's hopes had been put to roiit,
And the editor's heart was blue.
When the strain on his nerves was there no more,
And the Annual ready to send.
His heart was light, and his hands were sore.
